Educators at all levels make decisions that can have a huge impact on students. That’s especially true when it comes to the use of technology, which was activated like never before to help students learn from home safely during the pandemic. Now, district and school leaders and teachers are preparing for a new school year featuring mostly in-person instruction.
The transition from remote and hybrid instruction to in-person learning carries with it a whole new set of complicated decisions: How do educators determine which technologies that were effective for remote and hybrid instruction should be integrated for full-time in-person learning? And which ones should be ditched? How can principals help teachers make the best use of the new tech skills they picked up delivering remote and hybrid learning? And how do teachers decide which tech tools will be best for students when nearly everyone is back in physical classrooms?
At the same time, students and their parents are bringing a whole new set of expectations about how technology should be used for learning, driven largely by their experiences with remote and hybrid instruction. They may want more transparency about what and how their children are learning, and greater clarity about how schools plan to use technology to accelerate learning in ways that help students catch up in key areas.
Join us for a conversation with educators at all levels—district, school, and classroom—about what it will take to make sure the most important lessons learned about the use of technology during the pandemic are applied to teaching and learning during the 2021-22 school year and beyond.
